Be advised that Adobe has removed DV and HDV Capture among other things from Premiere Elements 13.
PRE_help has pointed Premiere Elements 13 users who want this feature to possible workaround found in the
following Adobe document
Please let us know if that works for you.
Thank you very much for your swift answer. It seems it may be possible by capturing it using iMovie first-but I don't have iMovie on the mac!
Back to the drawing board.
Dear AT ROMANO and John T
Just discovered I DO have iMovie on the Mac (New computer) and I have successfully captured footage to iMovie from the miniDV. I have also imported that footage from iMovie to Premier Elements so I am in business again!
It is a shame PrE does not support miniDV (why not when there are millions of old camcorders out there?) but nevertheless thanks for your help in getting me out of a jam.
Great news of your success with iMovie capture in conjunction with Premiere Elements 13 Mac. Great job of sorting through the workaround details to
obtain the solution that was needed for that success.
Thanks for the follow up information which will be appreciated by all, especially Premiere Elements 13 Mac users looking for the same answers
that you sought. Major contribution.
